A few days after we got back from our trip out west, Rich and I drove down to Kansas City to take Michelle out to a baseball game. The Red Sox were playing and we have gone down there before with the Royals are hosting Boston. It is easier than flying back to Boston for a game…although Fenway….so worth it! We met Michelle at her house and took her out to dinner before heading to the stadium. Although Michelle is not a big baseball fan, she managed to don a Royals shirt and happily accompanied us when we bribed her with chocolate dippin dots. I was very blessed to have a friend from Leesville High School, where we both graduated together decades ago, join us. It was so great to catch up with Leif and to introduce him to Rich and Michelle. The Red Sox did not win. The Boston manager got kicked out of the game for mouthing off to the ump. Ah well. It was so great to be able to spend some time with Michelle and catch up on everything. I can’t begin to tell you all how proud I am of all the hard work she has done. Grief sucks. We lost our son and she lost the love of her life. Thankfully, we still have each other and can lean on each other when need be. Only regret? We should have had her wear the extra Red Sox jersey we brought!
